Learning is like a design in water,
contemplation like a design on the side of the wall,
meditation like a design in stone.

Yanguan and the Rhinoceros Fan

One day, Enkan called to his attendant, “Bring me the rhinoceros fan.”

The attendant said, “It is broken.”

Enkan said, “If the fan is already broken, bring me the rhinoceros himself.”

The attendant gave no answer.

Shifuku drew a circle and wrote the ideograph “ox” in it.
